The U.S. Postal Service issues this Priority Mail stamp to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Lili‘uokalani Gardens in Hilo, Hawaii. Built on land donated by Queen Lili‘uokalani (1838–1917), the last Hawaiian monarch to govern the islands, the gardens were dedicated in 1917 and named in her honor. The stamp art features one of the gardens‘ most iconic structures, the red wooden shelter on a stone bridge spanning a portion of the pond. The bridge is surrounded by three of the gardens’ stone lanterns and lush tropical plants. Art director Greg Breeding designed the stamp with original art by Dan Cosgrove.
